The second annual Battle of the Gumbo Gladiators gumbo cook-off is accepting team registrations now. The event, a fundraiser for Volunteers for Youth Justice, will take place March 29th, 2014, at Festival Plaza in downtown Shreveport.
The 1st Annual Gumbo Gladiators competition was a huge success. More than 25 teams entered the contest and they cooked 10 seafood varieties of gumbo and 22 non-seafood gumbos. The event attracted more than 1,000 people to Festival Plaza to taste the gumbo varieties.
